Follow me. For the next two months, we will wander onto the unknown paths of A Time to Die. I expect we’ll meet new characters, foreign places, wondrous inventions, and maybe a little danger…
Character Interview #1 — Jude
Welcome to my blog, Jude. I’m quite thrilled to have you here. I know how busy your schedule can be.
Good sunrise. Thanks for having me. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a functioning blog. Have you ever considered using an X-book journal to send to followers? It’s the twenty-second century, after all.
Er…well, I can’t say I know what an X-book is. I didn’t know blogs were so out-of-date. But let’s move on, shall we? Tell us a little about yourself.
You’re not friends with the Council, are you?
Okay then. I don’t usually share too much about myself, but since you asked…I’m an inventor. I come from a long line of inventors. I had hoped to continue that line but…well, I don’t think that will be my future.
An inventor? Really? What is your favorite invention?
That’s easy — the tune chip. It’s not something I invented, but I’d be lost without it. A tune chip is a device inserted into your skull and paired with your brain and inner ear. It plays music to match your mood and only you can hear it. The tune chip creates songs from inexhaustible algorithms so everything you hear is new — never been heard before.
Wow, you really know a lot about that.
Yeah, sorry. Sometimes I get carried away. I…really like technology.
Hey, I think it’s fascinating. But here’s a more personal question for you: What is your greatest fear?
That my inventions will make the world a darker place than it already is, instead of bringing light.
Earlier, you seemed a little wary about the Council. Who is the Council? Why do you mistrust it?
I feel like you’re setting me up.
Oh, no. I’m not. I’m just curious.
. . .hmm.
*ahem* Okay. Well, let’s hit the romance front before we say goodbye. Parvin Blackwater. Is there…anything there?
I don’t know. We’ve only just met, but…I like to think there could be, or there could have been. I suppose it’s up to her, really. I don’t have much right to pursue her.
Why do you say that?
*shrugs* I don’t have time for a relationship.
That’s no reason to leave a pretty girl hanging!
In a world where Clocks tell us how many hours and seconds we have left…time is everything. At least, it is for most people. I guess we’ll see.
I expect you to keep me updated. How can my readers contact you?
Through my nanobook. I’ll answer when I can but I’m trying to lay low for a while. No guarantees.
Thanks for taking the time to let me interview you. We hope you’ll stop by again!
What would you like to know about Jude? I’ll see if I can contact him through his nanobook while he travels to get an answer for you. Ask in the comments!
